The secret(ary) behind their success

Between running from crazed hordes of teenage girls and recording album after album of timeless pop music, The Beatles understandably had little time for mundane tasks such as answering their fan mail. Luckily for them – and fans all over the world – they had Freda Kelly. Kelly was only a teen herself when she helped start the Beatles fan club and soon after, Brian Epstein hired her to be the group's secretary. In this utterly charming documentary, Freda tells her own version of the story of how "The Fab Four" conquered the world.
